I must say we got a few more votes than normal this month.

I would say that's the bottom line then. If the system appeals to more people, as I guess it would, being more modern and all, then it's a better system.

I think the problem before was that really only MAGS vets knew to click the link in the specific post by the MAGS host to get to the link to the PM, and even then there was no structure to follow unless they had read how to vote.

People like to just click on boxes and have it all automated. Nothing wrong with that of course. And if it gets more voters then go for it I say.

@ Blondbraid : I'll be glad to come back to Stalingrad - so to speak - no matter if we play sniper, spotter or a commissar.
...
When this MAGS competition is over, there'll be an update of Black Morph to fix the problems that have been reported. I'll probably stop working on the game afterwards because Selmiak wants a complete overhaul of the game that I disagree with.
Happy that you liked my concept!
Also, Black Morph had some great ideas, it wold be fun to see them expanded upon in the future.

I also think that the poll in this competition felt fast and easy to use, I like it.

Congratulations to Selmiak, Emont and Creamy! :-D

Using the poll seems to work better, too. Especially as everyone can see the result once the poll has been closed. (nod)

Okay you bunch of preschoolers lol. I like the poll(not pole) as well.

It reminds me of how voting used to be with the site that had all the previous mags entries listed and you simply clicked to select a winner for the current month. Can someone tell me when and why that ended? I'm curious as I have spurts of absence from the AGS website, but definitely noticed that change upon return.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

@Riaise - To be fair I pretty much always post the results pretty shortly after the deadline closes.

@Twirlly - We stopped using the MAGS site because of an incident that highlighted the fact that non-forum members could vote and I wanted to keep it members only. Using the forum poll kind of bridges that gap; I still can't see who is voting (which would be ideal, personslly) but at least they have to be signed up members.

Oh, I didn't mean it in that sense, you do a great job with running the MAGS. :) I wasn't sure if the poll would show the result after it was closed, or if it would still be hidden and you would post it as usual. I just meant that it was nice to be able to see the result visually (Cassie and Mandle are clearly enjoying it :P). Sorry about that, I should have worded it better.

As blackudder would put it, we'll try to come up with a cunning theme that's cunning.
